Full Description

An outstanding and beautifully appointed detached house with magnificent views across to the mountains and a wonderful, private indoor swimming pool. There are 650m² of gardens as well. Set in beautiful Ginoles les Bains, with only a fifteen minute stroll into Quillan, with all the shops, restaurants and bars that this market town is famous for, this is a unique house in an elevated position.
There is a large terrace (90m²) which wraps around the house but is mostly on the south side facing the mountains with plenty of space to have large tables and chairs, barbecues and anything else that you want in order to make the dream of living outside in the sunshine come true.
The house at present is split into three parts but all adjoin so you can either rent part of the house out or use it all.
The ground floor which has its own separate entrance and south facing balcony. Comprising of a large, open-plan, modern kitchen/dining area (27m²)with granite work surfaces, leading on to an ample sized lounge (17m²) with feature wall which includes a Godin wood burning fire and French doors opening onto a quarry tile-floored balcony (8m²). The mountain views from the lounge and balcony area are nothing short of exquisite. There are two bedrooms on this floor (17m² and 14m²) one with its own en-suite bathroom and a further bathroom.

You enter the middle floor via French doors leading to an open plan lounge/diner (26m²) with log-burner set in a stone fireplace. This then leads to the extremely well equipped kitchen area (14m²) with walk-in pantry. On this floor there are also two bedrooms (13m² and 11m²), a walk in shower/wet room and separate w.c. All the floors on this level are tiled in marble. There is exposed stone work in the lounge area adding a homely, rustic feel to the room. There are three sets of French windows on this floor out onto the terrace from all sides of the house, allowing lots of sunlight in and making the terraces easily accessible.

On the top floor, you have a very large apartment for letting, or you could use it as part of the main family home. There is a spacious open plan lounge/kitchen/diner (46m²) and four further bedrooms (13m² 9m² and two 10m²) plus two bathrooms. The views are as stunning as you would expect from this floor as well.

Now to the pool(6.5m x 5.5m), which is professionally installed and has a deep end. Being situated in a private, beautifully tiled pool room (9m x 8m) with its own bathroom, it is a spectacular feature of the property. There are sliding doors from the pool room out onto its own terrace area with room for loungers, table and chairs etc. The pool and terrace face south towards the breathtaking views of the mountains. Probably the most impressive fact is that this pool can be heated, so you can use it all year round. The current owners of the property take bookings from guests during every season.

The property is in excellent order with its own private parking spaces. It is set well back from the road up a short drive. In a prominent position, the house offers very quiet accommodation in a sought-after location.

The owners, are a husband and wife team from the U.K. They bought the property in 2016 with a view to having a place large enough for friends and family to visit, and running it as a holiday rental business in-between. They currently live in the ground floor apartment and rent out the two floors above (6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms) for parts of the year. The growth and success of the business has exceeded all expectation and they have thoroughly enjoyed providing a place for family groups to spend time together for holidays. Online reviews left by guests are testament to the success of the venture, but the owners feel it is now time to retire and allow someone else to experience the magic of owning this incredible property.
